This autumn the RHS Campaign for School Gardening is celebrating its 10th Birthday #WOW! The campaign has changed my life in so many ways – if it wasn’t for the RHS you probably wouldn’t be reading this blog!
So, I want to do a big shout out for their Big #SoupShare and wish them a Happy Birthday!

Over these past 2 years of blogging, I’ve had some lovely invites off schools and community groups inviting me to have a nosey at their gardens and where possible, I will always try and take people up on their kind offer.
So, right at the end of my summer holidays I went to St Luke’s Community Garden and Orchard in Leeds, to check out their garden and to take part in a morning scything workshop and afternoon herbal sessions and it was absolutely fab!
At home we garden organically, my Dad works for Organic North, so it’s safe to say we are the Organic Northerners!
In August I visited Peak Organics in Derbyshire, with my Grandma Barbara and spent a day with them as they harvested their crops ready for market.
I’ve met Matt from Hampshire Carnivorous Plants (CP) a couple of times at RHS Flower Shows and bought my first CP plants from him a few years ago.
At RHS Tatton this year, Matt invited me to his nursery, so I took him up on the offer when I was camping in The New Forest on holiday.
I’ve just returned from a 15-day road trip in our campervan and it was totally awesome.
From the start of the journey, when we had a great view of a sparrow hawk, to red kites on the way home, I’ve had an amazing wildlife adventure.
